Eric Look’s Story

Eric was diagnosed with Kanner-type Autism when he was three years old. Along with that diagnosis followed many years of uncontrollable obsessions, severe sound sensitivity, challenging behaviors and the inability to communicate as most children do. But in the midst of all of this shined his music. He started with a little yellow V-tech keyboard at the age of four, playing songs by ear. Over the years the keyboards got bigger and the songs more complex. He has overcome the many obstacles that the autism provided to become the fine young man and musician he is today.
